Paint Swatch Banners


As I mentioned (in the last post),
I'm doing a craft camp for girls ages 7-12. 
One of the crafts we did today was a paint swatch banner.

I have 2 different ones to share (both cute):
-a summer one 
-a forth of july one



 
Along with the tutorial on how to make your own banner I'm also including a freebie. 
It's the letters for the banner (I'm so nice)! 
you can get the freedom one here and the 
summer one here

WANT TO MAKE YOUR OWN? 



GET: 
-paint swatches (6 or 7)
-bakers twine/ any kind of string 
-packing tape
-foam adhesives 
-banner letters 

DO:
-cut all your paint swatches into triangles (if your doing the freedom banner you also need small triagles of one color)
-THIS STEP IS ONLY FOR THE FREEDOM BANNER:
  put a foam adhesive on the small triangle 
  put the small triangle on the big one
-cut out the letters with a 21/2" punch 
-put a foam adhesive on the back of the letters 
-put the letter on the triangle 
-punch a two small holes in the top of all the triangles 
-put string through the holes and tape it in place
